Asylum

Asylum may be granted to people in the United States who are unable or unwilling to return their home country because of a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.

Ordinarily, one qualifies for asylum only if they apply within one year of their arrival in the United States. However, there are exceptions to this one year deadline, which may apply to your case. Also, if you do not meet one of the exceptions for filing within one year, you may still be eligible for withholding of removal, which does not contain a deadline to file.

You may apply for asylum regardless of your immigration status, meaning that you may apply even if you are illegally in the United States. If you feel you are victim of persecution in your home country, contact the law office of Michael G. Murray, P.A. for a consultation on whether it is in your best interest to file an application for asylum or withholding of removal.
